I do not think every question requires an answer. however this author obviously did not pay attention to Harav Moshe Zatzal's reasoning. The simple reason why HaRav Moshe allowed this was due to the severe financial penalties a company would incur if they lied and passed off something else as cows milk.

He pronounced it "fajnʃtajn", as in both "ei"s sounding like "eye" and the "s" like an "sh". I am reporting a firsthand account of Rav Moshe using this pronunciation regularly.

According to Hirhurim, quoting the OU (http://torahmusings.com/2010/12/update-on-cholov-stam/) the milk itself is tested before it can be packaged and marketed. "Even one pail of milk from other species intermingled in a silo sample of cow milk would show up in the results and indicate that the milk is not pure cow milk." Additionally, milk in each ...

Igros Moshe Even HaEzer IV: 92:2 The main quote is עכ"פ חזינן שלא כל דבר רשאי האדם לעשות בבבהמות שמצער אותם אף שהוא להרויח מזה אלא דבר שהוא הנאת האדם ממש כשחיטת הבהמות לאכילה ולעבוד בהם וכדומה In any case, we see that nothing is proper for a person to do to animals that causes them pain even if it causes a profit except for something that benefits the ...

While there are no clear Teshuvos on the matter, R' Lawrence (Levi) Reisman wrote a letter into the Jewsh Press where he noted that: ..two of the four weddings Reb Moshe made had completely separate seating. At Reb Reuven’s wedding, there were some mixed tables to accommodate those from his wife’s side who wouldn’t sit any other way.. ..It would ...

I have heard from both my grandfather and a talmid of my great grandfather Harav Chaim Ephraim Zaitchyk (a prominent rosh yeshiva in Europe and after the war an author of 33 mussar seforim), that when he was meshamesh the Chofetz Chayim, he saw that the Chofetz Chaim tucked his tzizis in. I do recall the idea that the Chofetz Chaim in Mishna Berura writes ...

I have heard from my Rebbe that Rav Moshe said that it was unsightly to wear the tzitzis untucked and dangling out from your pants, and as a ben torah you should appear proper and put-together to the outside world as you represent Torah.

He writes explicitly that he's not sure whether extinguishing an electric appliance is forbidden mid'oraysa, and uses that doubt as grounds, when combined with certain other grounds, to permit doing so. (Orach Chayim 3 #42.)

I listened to this shiur and a questioner (about half way through) asks almost exactly the same question (without referencing or meaning מענה לאגרות, and directly from the Mechaber). To explain the answer, basically Rav Reisman explains two points. 1) R. Moshe holds, not like the Pri Chodosh and others, that Cholov Yisroel is a Takkanah and the estimation ...

Rav Moshe simply redefines "seeing" as "ascertaining." Our level of ascertainment on American industrial milk today is on par with that of the Krakow dairy farmer of 1550 who would occasionally step out for a break. In effect, it is chalav yisrael.
